Water once, Feed Twice, Snuggle Always


Hi friends!  It's official...  I'm totally off my rocker!


I made a card for my dogs.


Well ..... sort of :) I made a card for our sweet house guests that will be hanging out here while we are hanging out in the land of Mickey!   As we head off to our Chevy Chase-like adventure trip to the Disney Parks, we are sadly leaving the fur babies behind on this trip.  I know they are in good hands.  I'm sad that we have to leave them. I know they will feel the anxiety of mommy not being home :(  I will miss them terribly!  But part of my leap of faith is trusting they will be greatly loved and snuggled!  


My husband thinks I'm crazy leaving notes all around the house.   I have a system.  I like organization and not chaos :)  Of course, the longest note is the one on the kitchen counter top with the 16 things they need to know about the pups ~ including the basic food & water and lap snuggles.  The card is right beside the jumbo bag of Pup-Peroni doggie treats. I just hope they know those are for the dogs! :x


I was so excited to ink up one of my Elzybells again!  I just love me some Elzybells stamps and they don't seem to get the chance to get inky anymore.  I paper-pieced the puppy on this one just to give it a different look, used some bright happy colors and ..... surprise!  Buttons!  Imagine that! :)  I hope they don't think I'm as nuts as my husband does for leaving them notes .... especially this one.  It's pretty CAS - inside it simply says ....... Thank You :)



  

Have a terrific rest of the week/weekend!  I hope blogger works its magic and launches my pre-posted blogginess :)  See you next week! x0x0  


Big Hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  5. So I am not the only one who writes books to those taking care of my fur babies, guess I like to think they will take care of them like mommy does :) Your card is adorable, such a fun card for them to have and know how much you care. Enjoy the babies will be in good hands.

  7. Your card is beautiful and I am sure your fur babies will love it. Why would you not leave notes about them? You want them to have everything done properly for them until you get back. I am glad you joined us at LEJ Designs this week; good luck in the challenge. Vee xx

  14. Super cute Kelly. NO you are not carazy at all. Your babies give such total unconditional love it is wonderful when you can give it back.
    There are times when we won't go away and leave our girls at all, particularly as Miss Angel's condition deteriorates.
    Totally enjoy your holiday!

  31. Ohhh... I feel like I'm peeking in a garden with the beautiful flowers on your blog background!! Love it!
    I don't think it's crazy at all to leave notes, after all, your fur babies can't tell them what to do! My mom took care of our baby while we hung out with Mickey and I left her a note, even though she is around him all the time! I do love the super adorable card!! Love that sweet puppy!! Have fun and give Mickey a hug from us!!
